Laboring in the wide shadow of Almodóvar and lacking much in the way of visual distinction, Unconscious compensates with its cast's full-tilt commitment to rip-snorting farce. Full Review

The Barcelona locations are gorgeous, with interiors and exteriors in the ornate style known as modernisme....With just enough glamour and humour to satisfy European heritage aficionados.

Rating: 2.5/4 -- [Director Joaquin] Oristrell's comedic sense only seems to succeed in spurts, and he often burdens the proceedings with a theatrical and contrived air that undermines the humor. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Are the Spanish the only ones these days able to make movie comedies that are smart, sexy, wacky and graceful all at once?

Rating: 4/5 -- The film is sustained effortlessly by the charismatic Watling and Tosar, who are among Spain's most popular movie stars. Full Review

[I]ts fusion of a Sherlock Holmes-style detective story with a delirious bedroom farce in the spirit of early Pedro Almodovar is frequently very funny.

Rating: 3/5 -- When it is good it is very, very good, and when it's not it's mediocre.

Product Description:

Joaquín Oristrell's UNCONSCIOUS is a a very funny romantic farce set in the supposedly austere psychiatric society of 1913 Barcelona. León Pardo (Alex Brendemühl) is a psychiatrist who suddenly disappears, telling his devoted pregnant wife, Alma (Leonor Watling), not to look for him. Worried for her husband's life, Alma enlists the help of her very serious brother-in-law, Salvador (Luis Tosar), another psychiatrist, to discover what is going on and to find León. Meanwhile, Alma's father, Dr. Mira (Juanjo Puigcorbé), one of the leading psychiatrists in Barcelona, is awaiting the arrival of Sigmund Freud, who is scheduled to speak at a special conference. Despite Salvador's protestations, Alma--whose sister, Olivia (Núria Prims), is married to Salvador--leads him on a dangerous adventure filled with sex, lies, violence, deception, and Marxist philosophy.

Alma and Salvador make a fabulous team, part Nick and Nora Charles, part Sherlock Holmes and Watson; Watling, a veteran of several Pedro Almodóvar films, is particularly engaging in the lead role, and Tosar as Salvador--with his hysterical facial hair--is a hoot the whole way through. Mercedes Sampietro adds to the humor as the Pardos's villainous housekeeper. Oristrell balances the seriousness with the farfetched in this old-fashioned romp, cowritten with Teresa de Pelegrí and Dominic Harari, the couple who directed and penned the nonstop comedy ONLY HUMAN. The period piece is enhanced by frames that kick off each new chapter, as well as by the great soundtrack by Sergio Moure.
